Easter Hunts Canceled, Towns Get Creative

first_imgAnd the best part? The Easter Bunny will deliver small candy prizes to the porches of Bingo winners! But the borough asks that parents do not meet the Easter Bunny at the porch for social distancing. An electronic calling system will be used for the Bingo. When a person wins Bingo, the first person to type it in the chat will win. Once the win is confirmed, based on the Bingo card code each board has, boards will be cleared and a new round will begin. FAIR HAVEN – With national orders to continue social distancing through April 30, Easter will have to be celebrated without the typical outdoor egg hunts with extended family, neighbors or community members. By Allison Perrine And get creative with it, the department encouraged. “We want to see those backyard Easter decorations, unique child (or family) outfits, out-of-the-box egg hiding places and maybe even an appearance by the Easter Bunny himself.” To make this a community event, each household is asked to record a 5 to 10-second video of their hunt and email it to recreation@fhboro.net. The video can include activities such the hunt itself or children counting their eggs after the hunt. The recreation department will then compile the clips into one Fair Haven Virtual Egg Hunt video for all to enjoy. It will be uploaded to borough media outlets. In Fair Haven it meant a virtual egg hunt for the town, free of charge. According to DJ Breckenridge, parks and recreation director, over 5,000 eggs were distributed to Fair Haven residents of all ages. Most of them, about 80 percent, were filled with candy. The other 20 percent were filled with toys from the Georgia-based company Ayers Family Eggs. Participating residents were able to pick up their goodies in the front vestibule at borough hall. Each household was eligible for one bag with 15 filled Easter eggs in each bag. The hunt will be held April 4 at 10 a.m in the comfort of everyone’s homes. “We encourage them tostand inside by the front dooror window and the EasterBunny will stop for a waveand photo before hopping tothe next house,” said Kane. Residents are also encouraged to take advantage of the three walking trails in town, walk through the borough’s natural area and access the borough’s free online video activity resources. Council president Susan Sorensen said Breckenridge has done an “excellent” job in coming up with community-focused activities that maintain social distancing, the virtual egg hunt included. center_img “We all realize that in times like these, we all really need our sense of community and being able to interact with neighbors, friends and family members more than ever, but are unable to do these things in person,” said Sorensen. “Our recreation department is working hard to maintain Fair Haven’s sense of community through these ‘virtual’ activities – and to have some fun during these trying times.” That includes the borough’s Daily Challenge. Every day for three weeks, which started March 30, residents are invited to submit their best pictures or videos of specific challenges that the borough announces. That might include the funniest pet photo, the best sports trick shot, Fair Haven’s Got Talent and more. The challenge of the day is posted every morning on Facebook, Instagram and the Fair Haven Recreation E-blast. There are four winners each day – child, adult, family and random draw. Prizes include gift certificates to Fair Haven eateries. Outside Fair Haven, Highlands Borough and its recreation department are also taking part in the virtual Easter fun with virtual Candy Bingo, instead of the annual Easter egg hunt on the beach. With federal and state mandates in mind, recreation department heads in the Two River area got to thinking: What can be done with thousands of plastic eggs and holiday treats, without the large crowds or gatherings? Highlands residents ages 14 and under can register for free through League Apps, an electronic management system. Once registered, parents will receive Bingo cards electronically or by porch delivery, as well as electronic invitations to where the activity will be hosted and streamed with chat capabilities, said Jacqueline Kane, Highlands recreation program coordinator. COURTESY FAIR HAVEN The Fair Haven Recreation Department left bags of filled plastic Easter eggs at borough hall for residents to take and use during an April 4 virtual Easter egg hunt. It can, however, include some virtual holiday fun. “In these difficult times, the borough seeks to continue to engage our community, and keep our ‘family feel’ while maintaining social distancing,” said Breckenridge. “If this event and other programming we are rolling out gives families just a little something to look forward to, we have done what we have set out to do.” This article originally appeared in the April 2nd, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

(May 29, 2019)–A nose shy of being undefeated in three starts, trainer Simon Callaghan’s Maxim Rate bids for her second consecutive graded victory as she heads Saturday’s Grade III, $150,000 Honeymoon Stakes at Santa Anita. For 3-year-old fillies at a mile and one eighth on turf, the Honeymoon has attracted a field of eight, including stablemate Hostess and the Richard Baltas-conditioned Lady Prancealot, both of whom were narrowly beaten by Maxim Rate when last they met.MAXIM RATEOwner:  Slam Dunk RacingTrainer:  Simon CallaghanA first-out one mile maiden turf winner from off the pace on Feb. 16, she was second, beaten a nose from off the pace in the Grade III, 1 1/8 miles Providencia Stakes on April 6.

Spurs eyeing swoop for Fiorentina ace Riccardo Sottil after slow start

Sheff Utd boss Wilder fumes over VAR ‘disgrace’ that ruled out Blades goal

first_imgMauricio Pochettino speaks about needing time to build a squad after Spurs draw 1-1 with Sheffield United CHRIS WILDER called for a major review of VAR after Jon Moss failed to follow the Premier League’s OWN guidelines to deny Sheffield United a famous victory.After video ref Moss controversially ruled out a Blades goal at Tottenham following FOUR MINUTES of analysis.2 Chris Wilder was proud of his team’s performance… but fuming with VARCredit: EPAAnd, after the 1-1 draw, Blades boss Wilder said: “I’m 100 per cent sick of talking about VAR.“We went to a Premier League meeting on Thursday to discuss VAR and they told us that any offside had to be clear and obvious.“Well, this wasn’t clear and obvious because there seems to be confusion about whether the Tottenham player’s armpit was ahead of John Lundstram’s big toe.“There’s no doubt that VAR is here to stay but certain aspects it are spoiling the game and we need to have a big look at it in the summer.“I’ve been in the game since I was 16 and some of the decisions this season have left me scratching my head.“There was for us also confusion as to when is the reset. Lundstram has crossed from the right, the ball has come back out, we’ve attacked down the left side and then they rule offside from the first cross.“What really disappoints me is the talking point should be how my team went toe- to-toe with the Champions League finalists in their own backyard but all we’re speaking about is VAR.”Lundstram’s toe led to David McGoldrick’s ‘goal’ being disallowed two minutes after Son Heung-min’s opener. But the official VAR image appeared to show Lundstram was played ONSIDE by the head and shoulder of Eric Dier.2 David McGoldrick’s ‘goal’ was disallowed by VAR after FOUR minutesCredit: GettyEven Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said: “For me the referee must be the boss on the pitch but with VAR he isn’t.“It’s difficult to accept and I understand Chris is not happy with that goal being disallowed. I empathise with Sheffield United.”Former Premier League ref and SunSport expert Mark Halsey said: “Is this system fit for purpose? At the moment you have to say it isn’t.“The buck stops with Mike Riley. The Premier League is being undermined by the implementation of VAR.“The camera angles we are seeing need to be parallel with the offside incident — that was not the case here.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLSILVA’S GOLDEN GIRLModel Ines Tomaz has been helping Bernardo Silva through quarantineGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBAYERN 5 DUSSELDORF 0Lewa bags two as Bayern thump rivals to close on 8th straight titleTHEIR CALLReferees in Northern Ireland will be given choice on coming back says union bossHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spot“Also, the offside occurred in the previous phase of play so it should not have been checked.”Wilder added: “My heart was in my mouth every time they went to VAR.“I’m just glad our ‘second’ goal was given.”last_img read more

Mourinho targets bumper £90m swoop for Napoli defender Koulibaly

first_imgJOSE MOURINHO is targeting a bumper £90million transfer swoop for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports.El Desmarque claim the Tottenham boss is desperate to shore up his defence and has already opened talks with the Serie A club over a January move.2 Jose Mourinho is poised to make a fresh attempt to sign Kalidou Koulibaly after missing out at Manchester UnitedCredit: ReutersThe Spanish outlet adds that Mourinho faces competition for the Senegalese ace from two of his former clubs in Real Madrid and Manchester United.The Portuguese boss was desperate to sign Koulibaly at Old Trafford, with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis confirming that they rejected a £95m bid for the centre-back last year.Spurs kept their first clean sheet under Mourinho in the 5-0 win over Burnley, conceding two per game in the four matches before that.Both Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are set to leave the club on free transfers in the summer and are free to agree moves with non-English clubs in January.KOUL STORYKoulibaly has emerged as one of Europe’s most highly-rated defenders since moving to Napoli in 2014, but has long been linked with a move away from Italy.Despite his public declaration of love for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, the 28-year-old may finally up sticks and leave this year following a series of off-field problems.Mutiny broke out at Napoli last month when the players ignored orders to stay at the training ground for an intense retreat – known as in ritiro – to try and turn around a poor run of form.President De Laurentiis slapped the key offenders with fines, with Koulibaly thought to be among the worst targeted after he was docked £192,000.Ultras quickly took the president’s side and terrified footballers fled their homes under fear of confrontation.LADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict West Ham, Man Utd vs Everton and Arsenal vs Man City scores this coming weekend and win £100Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticThis led to reports that Koulibably would be among the stars sold no matter what, but any arrival would still cause Spurs to break their transfer record.The north London club only broke their record to snap up Tanguy Ndombele for £65m from Lyon back in July.And many anticipated that Mourinho would likely come into conflict with notoriously thrifty Daniel Levy over the Special One’s tendency to splash the cash.2Man Utd have offered £95m for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly – here is whylast_img read more
